Aldi Ashby 20 – Sunday 15th March 2020 – Road Closures

The Aldi “Ashby 20” is a 20-mile road running race through Packington on Sunday 15th March 2020, starting at 10am.  About 1,500 runners will take part, and there are road closures for safety, for a likely maximum period from about 8am to about 3pm. Full details can be found here on the Ashby 20 website

Mill Street will be CLOSED from 9:05 to 10:15 am

Runners come from Ashby, go down Packington’s Mill Street, then do two anti-clockwise laps of the roughly-circular course shown on the map below.  The anti-clockwise left side of all roads of the circle are CLOSED during the race. Roads are open only in the opposite clockwise direction.  In Heather village, traffic may flow alternately in both directions using Stop / Go boards

At the Bull & Lion on their second lap, runners turn up High Street, Packington, and on up Ashby Road to their finish at Ashby. There is a full schedule of Road Closure details in a table here on the Ashby 20 website

You’ll be able to drive FROM the 5-ways Junction, along Measham Road to Packington, but NOT the other way, due to 1,500 runners coming that way
